you marry us if we are of different faiths or no
We frequently marry couples that are not the
same faith, or one or the other has no particular belief. In fact most
of our couples do not belong to a church, or they would
probably be getting married in their parish. We do not require
membership in any congregation in order to marry you. The only
requirement is that you can obtain a legal marriage certificate from
the State of Wisconsin.

your church? If not, can we inquire about becoming a member?
do not have an organized congregation, as our
wedding ministry comes to you for your ceremony, and we go to our
couples to minster in marriage when called upon. If you would like a
referral to a church in the area, we would be glad to help you find a
parish that would fit with your particular beliefs and lifestyle.
you require pre-marital or religious counseling
before getting married? If so, what does that entail?
do not require it, but do like to know and get
a feeling for you as a couple. We casually chat about your goals,
family, children and why you want to marry. It is not formal, and
more-so helps us get to know you and helps us write a more personal
ceremony. We DO offer an opetion non-religious marriage edication
course for an additional fee. This is taught by Certified Marriage
Educator Rev. Michelle.

ceremonies, vows, readings, poems and ring vows that you can choose
from. We provide this in an 145+ page online ceremony planning guide
which allows you to pick and choose parts from anything that you like.

encourage you to use readings that are meaningful to you and your
guests and family. We have a large selection to choose from
ranging from traditional bible text to modern day love poems.

We have had songs ranging from the hallelujah

weddings start a little late, but we strongly
encourage you to plan ahead so you can start on time. As long as you

another time block, your officiant may need to leave for another
wedding, or you may be charged for the next lock of time.
